HOFMANN A.B., University of Michigan, 1943. - Ph.D. Harvard, 1952. - Markle Scholar, 1955-1960. - Associate Professor of Pharma- cology. A superb teacher, whose fine wit and lucid discussions brought laughter and learning to our Second Year. While a gentleman of the laboratory, he was able to bring what is pertinent to the clinician clearly to the fore. It is with pride and pleasure that the Class of 1968 dedicates its Yearbook to him. "He 1ms won every vote who mingles usefulness with pleasure, by delighting and instructing . . . at the same time." Horace. To GEORGE H. HUMPHREYS B.A., Harvard, 1925. - M.D., 1929. — Assistant Dean, College of Physicians and Surgeons 1944- 45. — Valentine Mott Professor of Surgery, College of Physic- ians and Surgeons, and Director, Surgical Service, Presbyterian Hospital, 1946-68. As surgeon and teacher, he is an inspiration to a generation of aspiring doctors. He has been both contri- butor and mentor to the field of thoracic surgery, from the time he arrived at Presbyterian Hospital as a young interne, when thoracotomy was done with reticence and under local anaesthesia, to the present, when open-heart surgery is an everyday occurrence. To us, the class of 1968, he has been the distingu- ished, wise and learned gentleman, who always spoke for the direct approach to problems, skillfully guid- ing us through logical steps to the correct solution. It is a great honor for us to dedicate the Yearbook of the Class of 1968 to him. ADMINISTRATION H.

I will follow that system of regimen which according to my ability and judgment I consider for the benefit of my patients, and abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, I will give no deadly medicine to anyone if asked, nor suggest any such counsel; and in like manner I will not give to a woman a pessary to produce abortion. With purity and with holiness I will pass my life and practice my Art. I will not cut persons laboring under the stone, but will leave this to be done by men who are practitioners of this work. Into whatever houses I enter I will go into them for the benefit of the sick and will abstain from every voluntary act of mischief and corruption; and further, from the seduction of females and males, of freemen and slaves. Whatever, in connection with my professional prac- tice or not in connection with it, I see or hear in the life of men which ought not to be spoken of abroad, I will not divulge, as reckoning that all such should be kept secret. While I continue to keep this oath unviolated may it be granted to me to enjoy life and the practice of the Art, respected by all men and all times. But should I trespass and violate this oath may the reverse be my lot. 808 THE CLASS OF 1968 EUGENE M. AMBARD Honolulu, Hawaii B.A., Williams ORTHOPEDICS DANIEL C.

Spitzberg 1966-1968 CLASS POLL 1968 Several months ago, if you had the all too frequent misfortune of waiting for the Bard Hall elevator, you would have noticed a cartoon by Jules Feiffer depicting two schoolboys discussing their parents' attitudes toward contemporary social issues. Both found their parents to be pro-drug, pro-hippie, anti- war, and likely to be arrested at every protest dem- onstration. One then commented dismally: "Fat chance we have of getting into medical school!" Between the words "into" and "medical" someone had scrawled "Columbia". Will the image of the conservative, cautious, gray- vested physician, religiously sitting on the right, be the one perpetuated by the P&S graduate of 1968? With this question in mind we undertook a poll to ascertain the social and political characteristics of our class. Of the 107 students polled, 69 returned their questionnaires, representing two thirds of the class. ft>MDS*#ft 104 l_n_ « mu i w pc* o r ~- T ■'-'-' '-"-•'-' cc ' lETH M ^ V - ,NG Only 100 of our original 123 class members are present for the final count, with the remaining seven of the total graduating class being later recruits. S m^mM Nine percent of our parents have annual incomes of less than $7,500, 17% are in the $7,500 to $15,000 bracket, 39% in the $15,000 to $30,000 bracket, and 25X take in more than $30,000. Sixty-one percent of the class still receives a significant portion of their maintenance from parental largesse. To further finance their education 63% of our classmates held part-time jobs, 58% received full or partial scholar- ships and 39% took out loans. Was there a geographic bias to our origins? It would seem so: the East Coast contributed a full 80% of the class. Only 8% each came from the West and Midwest, with a small 4% from the South. * £ ft "• 1 as BBS I *^ t = "Ti / J W - * God and Man at P&S was an infrequent twosome. Only 20% considered themselves active in an or- ganized religion, although one half did profess be- lief in a Deity. The remaining respondents were either agnostics or unbelievers. When P&S opened its doors to us in 1964, only 3% sported a gold wedding band, but on leaving 54% will, proof positive that courting and marriage are compatible with medical study. The popular notion that doctors typically marry only nurses was not substantiated, for only 13% have done so. Twenty-three percent of our mates are employed in education, while other occupations given were Russian historian, promotion copywriter, researcher, bacteriologist, social worker, secretary, artist, librar- ian, physician, attorney and IBM operator. Ten percent were students, of whom two were in medi- cine. Finally, a hard-working 8% are housewives. Ein Liebeskind 68'e'rs apparently do not intend to keep their wives employed outside the home exclusively. Fifty-eight percent want 1 to 3 children, 36% want more than three, and 2% will leave up to the stork. Four percent want none, perhaps having con- tracted gastroenteritis during their Pediatrics rota- tion! Family programming has widespread popularity: 76% stated they would prefer their wives to use the Pill as the contraceptive of choice. Twelve percent favored the diaphragm, and 5% found either means desirable. There were 6% who remained true phys- iologists and preferred "rhythm and chance". One classmate's vote went to the IUCD. Sixty-seven percent thought the Pill safe for prolonged use. The use of an oral contraceptive for males received 57% support. One cautious respondent demanded to know the mechanism of action of such a pill be- fore he would commit himself. Kay ir Eric Handsficld Frank Fidei.Jr What did the average P&S student do for enter- tainment during his past four years? Sixty-three percent felt that the P&S Club played an important role in their extracurricular activities, especially during the first two years. Looking downtown, the poll indicated that 599c of the class attended to 3 concerts per year, 22% 3 to 8, and the rest more than S. Half went to 3 to 3 plays, 30% to 3 to S, and 20? to at least S. Only 3? attended more than 3 musicals a year. Other diversions included premarital intercourse experienced by 73% of the class. Twenty-one per- cent denied this activity, one emphatically stating, "Heavens no! " Six percent, the more cavalier, just couldn't remember. An interesting finding was that 75% of the class has been to Europe. Thirty-two percent have vis- ited the Continent at least once, 16% twice, 13% three times, and the rest four times or more. One habitue has been over and back ten times! Once there, the P&S student gets around .with ease. Ninety-three percent of the class speaks at least one other language, 33% speak two, 8% three, 6% four, and 2% each five and six. Not all of us have been satisfied with contributing merely to the European gold drain, for 18% have gone to Africa, 18? to Asia, and 9? to South America. For less lengthy travel, one half of P&S students have their own cars, motorcycles or motorscooters. Christmas in the Tropics MEDICINE IN THE TROPICS As noted in the Poll, the Class of '68 is a well travelled group. One of the most attractive oppor tunities for travel offered the P&S student in the Fourth Year is the electivi "Medicine in tlte Tropics' presented by the Department of Parasitology under the direction of Harold W. Brown, whose ability\ and enthusiasm make parasitology one of the mos, delightful and instructive courses of our Second Year. But all is not parasitology in Africa, Asia and South America, for, as Dr. Brown puts it, "the elective expresses our interests in the cosmopolitain diseases, such as tuberculosis, syphilis, malnutrition, pneumonia, dysentery, cancer, cardiovascular dis- ease, and the host of diseases which, due to climate ctdture, economics, diet and race, are often very prevalent and severe in the tropics". On this pro gram, three of us have gone to Surinam, fourteer to three different hospitals in Liberia, two to Tax wan, and one each to Bolivia and Zululand. In addition, the elective provides the ideal oppor tunity to see much of the rest of the world, if com bined with our month's vacation. For instance, twt of us are skiing in the Alps in March, and skin diving in the Aegean in May, j'i addition to their stint in Liberia and two others are using Taiwan a the starting point of a voyag around the world! These glimpses of the Fireston Plantations Company Hospital Harbel, Liberia, were contribute. by Tim Lipman. It has been said that a man is known by what he reads, that is, if he has the opportunity to do so. Forty-four percent stated that they read fewer than 5 non-medical books yearly, 31% between 5 and 10, and the rest over 10 books. One classmate reads a retina detaching 50 books per year, while another confessed, "None, but I sew and paint". Thirty percent of the class voted Time magazine the most popular non— medical journal, with the New; Yorker as runner-up polling only 10%. Playboy was the choice of 8%, a figure that suspiciously par- allels the 10% female enrollment. Other magazines frequently cited were the New Republic, Ram- parts, New York Review of Books, Newsweek, Foreign Affairs, and Scientific American. Two dark horses were Prevention and American West. The editors have posted a huge reward for copies of these subversive journals. The pressures of medical school have not sup- pressed the femininity of our fair colleagues, who . listed McCalTs, Home Beautiful and Vogue on their polls. It is because our women are able to maintain their femininity in a male habitat that an overwhelming 92% of the class voted not to decrease the female enrollment. • We are a class of journal readers: 24% read one regularly, 38? read two, 28X read three or more, and only 10% read none. The NEJM and Annals lead all other preferences, with 42% and 27% class reader- ship, respectively. Other journals listed included Ciba Symposia, AJM, Disease-a-Month, Medical Economics, and the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. % i.. On the question of drugs, drinking and smoking, 25% stated that they had smoked marijuana. We hope that this does not alarm the mothers of America, as we are sure our pot-smokers all use the Strickman filter. However, only 6% of the class have taken "speed" and only one has taken an LSD trip. Seventy-five percent drink less than one-half pint of liquor a week, 18% about one pint, 2% between one and two pints, and 5% at least one quart. Despite the anticipated prophylaxis of the Strickman filter, 82% of our class does not smoke cigarettes, and of those who do, all wish they could stop. Nine per- cent smoke less than one-half pack daily, 7% one pack, and 2% two packs or more. Legalization of marijuana was favored by 66% of the class, but only 22% were in favor of legalizing heroin. Sixty-one percent felt prostitution should be legalized, on the basis that it would stimulate the economy. i c ■. Thirty-nine percent of our classmates polled stated that they had visited a psychiatrist as a pa- tient. When asked if they had ever contemplated suicide, 45% stated that they had. Sixteen percent considered themselves racially prejudiced; however, only 50% would approve of their child entering into an inter-racial marriage. Three percent stated that despite their disapproval they would allow such a marriage. Politically, the class votes 39% Republican, 40% Democratic, and 4% Socialist. Seventeen percent aren't saying but may well have been among the 70% who voted in the last election. However, po- litical philosophies in the class do not necessarily follow party registration. Liberals outnumber Con- servatives 56% to 15%, with 29% sitting between the two factions. On one issue, 42% of the class favored extension of Medicare to the entire population. On another issue only 24% of the class approved of state aid to parochial schools. The AMA has scant following among students at P&S despite its faithfully mailed bulletin. Eighty- seven percent of our class does not approve of the AMA medical politics, 79% feel the AMA has dam- aged the physician's professional image, and only 36% would join it if no later obligations existed. Wjf f& * J? America's involvement in Vietnam was held to be morally wrong by 63% of the class. Fifteen percent believed in the existence of an international com- munist conspiracy. The late hours spent over text- books and charts evidently leave enough energy' for other acthities. Fully 37% of the class has partici- pated in protest marches. This approach was re- garded by 22% as the best means of increasing civil rights. Fifty-eight percent favored legislation, 40% favored voluntary social evolution, and 18% would employ civil disobedience. The liberal views of the Class of '68 are reflected in other areas as well. Eighty -two percent were in favor of legalized abortion, and 64% would perform a legal abortion on any patient so desiring. Should terminal patients' lives be prolonged? Sixty-four percent of the class said no, 16% said yes, and 20% felt the question was impossible to answer. -• ■ . How did the class feel about its four years at P&S? Ten percent thought the teaching was best in the preclinical years, while 83% favored the teaching the last two years. Sixty-five percent of the class ap- proved of the separation of basic sciences from clin- ical courses, but 87% felt clinical instruction should begin earlier than it presently does. Medicine was regarded by the highest number of the class as the department best applying its re- sources to teaching. Microbiology and Dermatology scored next highest. In a burst of 200th anniversary spirit, the editors refrain from mentioning class choices for poorest courses. May the guilt)' see the light and improve! Seventy-nine percent of the class felt that instruc- tion at P&S is superior to that in most other medical schools. Xonetheless, 60% regarded Harvard to be the top medical school with P&S second ("Watch out number one"). Eighteen percent ranked P&S number one. Choices for third best medical school ranged from Johns Hopkins (22%), Yale (15%), Cornell (10%), California (92), to Washington Uni- versity at St. Louis, Penn, Stanford, and Einstein each with 3%. Many felt it impossible to rank schools. Curriculum committee take note: fully 91% of the class desires more elective time, and none want a reduction. Only 9% are content with the present allottment. Should psychiatrists receive the same medical school training as surgeons? Forty-five percent of our class replied yes. Twenty-four percent of the class felt internships should be abolished. > • In the first week of school we were admonished not to wear "jagged, asymmetrical beards through the halls". Ten percent of us stated they would wear a mustache if approved by the Dean. Forty percent said no, and the remainder scratched their chins to see if the decision were really theirs. Future plans? Seventy-seven percent of the class plans to enter academic medicine to some extent. If the\' had not entered medicine, 18% of our class would have gone into university teaching, 16% into law, 10% into business management. Other al- ternative careers included Psychology, Architecture, "research", Engineering, Physics, Archeology, Gene- tics, Biology, History, Investments, Russian trans- lation. Medical Economics, Music, Art, the Minis- try, Carpentry, and Cabinet Making. One classmate answered he would be "poor", another, "unem- ployed", and a discontented third, "having more fun". Like father, like son? Sixty-one percent of the class would advise their sons to enter medicine (proving the existence of blind faith). Thirty-nine percent believed the decision should be the son's but that they would encourage any clearly demon- strable interest. After four arduous years, would we choose to go through P&S again? Seventy-five percent would do so ( again, proving the existence of blind faith ) . Will the '68 graduate of P&S find true happiness in Broken Jaw, Montana? Is he destined to join the ranks of Osier and Cushing? Will peace and tran- quillity continue to reign in Washington Heights? Look for the answers in our projected poll for 1993!

First, our heartfelt thanks to all the faculty and P & S Alumni who contributed the greater part of the means — their overwhelming response to our appeal meant that we could expand the book by 16 pages. Then, to all our advertisers, near and far, whose generous support of us will be noted by all who may enjoy reviewing this book. To Mrs. Elizabeth Wilcox whose superb photographs enabled us to heed the admonition, "A yearbook is mainly a picturebook." To Roger's Studio, for making us all so photogenic. To Mr. Barton who mimeographed the circulars which were indispensable to the pro- duction of this book. To Mr. Emil Schmidt and the firm Bradbury, Sayles, O'Neill, Publishers, for their guidance and craftmanship. And, last, to our classmates and members of the staff whose talents and sheer hard work through the year made P & S '68 a delightful undertaking. Z hat's all Jolks!

Here we will seek to acquire fresh knowledge in the field of therapeutics. Although much of the research will be at the "basic" level, special emphasis will be given to the search for compounds with potential therapeutic value. It is our expectation that the outcome of basic and applied research will be new drugs— the sign of steady progress toward directed goals. The Center dedicates itself to improving the future of man's health by helping to make the vision of a cure or treatment for every type of disease become a reality. ■ imdcz W MM n cn rrmu , wo w . nj. ■ SANDOZ COOK HOSPITAL SUPPLY (Division of Kramer Surgical Stores, Inc.)
